You can sit and gaze over the lily lagoon from the front verandah or you can relax in your spa tub on the back verandah and gaze in to the rainforest. Bliss… The kitchen has it all for the Home Chef including selection of spices, herbs, oils, vinegars, mustards.

Take time out to recharge.

Take time out to recharge!! Lillypads makes the very best of the tropical rainforest setting, featuring this Luxury Rainforest Cottage and it’s sister cottage set harmoniously within the vivid green rainforest, overlooking an exotic lily lagoon – The lagoon and gardens are designed to attract the splendid rainforest creatures. Experience the elusive Cassowary or just watch the stunning blue Ulysses butterflies flutter by. Often the Kingfishers can be seen diving into the Lily Lagoons and the colours of the Dragonflies are just amazing.


Lillypads offers uncommon luxury — a self-styled fantasy retreat where you can conjure up gourmet feasts simply by taking a stroll round the gardens to pick your own succulent fruits like the rare tree strawberry, papaya and jackfruit to enjoy on your own tropical deck. Alternatively, you may wish to harvest kafir limes for evening cocktails and laze away at the property’s deep saltwater pool, set in the lily lagoon and fringed with banana palms and pandanas.
